    Pension Sonnenberg: A mid-hike meal

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jan 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Meat and cheese platter

    There are only two places to eat (and stay) in Blumental - this the Pension Sonnenberg and Pension Suppenalp (at the far end of the valley). We found the Pension Sonnenberg's restaurant a relaxing and friendly place to lunch, with a terrace with fantastic views of the mountains (the chef was grilling meat outdoors when we were there). The menu is Swiss and prices slightly higher than in Mürren, but then the nearest competition is a 30-minute hike away

    Panorama Restaurant Allmendhubel: Panoramic views from Panorama Restaurant

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jan 25, 2014
    Al fresco dining in Allmendhubel

    The only place to eat/drink at Allmendhubel, by the funicular railway, is this restaurant/cafe, with a large terrace overlooking the mountains of the Bernese Alps. We whiled away here with beers and French fries while the kids busied themselves in the playground next door. Not a gastronomic experience, but a friendly easy-going place to catch a meal or drink.

    Restaurant at Pension Gimmelwald: Lovely place to eat

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jan 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A Pension Gimmelwald burger

    One of the few places to eat in Gimmelwald, the restaurant in the Pension Gimmelwald serves homemade local dishes. In summer, everyone sat outside on the beautiful terrace, which dramatically overlooks the Lauterbrunnental - the mountains were almost close enough to touch! Food wasn't bad and portions were generous. Service was friendly and slow (it's a tiny village after all and there was only one waiter).

    Piz Gloria: Revolving restaurant at 2970 metres

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jan 25, 2014
    Apple strudel on 007 crockery...

    The revolving restaurant on the summit of Schilthorn, Piz Gloria, offers views that are spectacular and food that is average and rather expensive. Still, it is often packed with tourists (booked out by tour groups) and offers a lazy but warm way of seeing the views from Schilthorn (if you get a window seat, that is - best to avoid peak lunch time if you want a window seat). The food can be a bit gimmicky - James Bond spaghetti anyone? I only had coffee and apple strudel here (so-so); wait, it was a James Bond apple strudel! They seem to advertise their breakfast buffet quite a bit.

    Tham Kok Keong: Good-value Chinese food in Mürren

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jan 25, 2014
    Not fondue

    What's a Chinese cafe doing in Mürren? Don't know, but thank goodness for it, 'cause there is only so much fondue one can eat. Mr. Tham is a Chinese Singaporean chef and his unassuming cafe serves good-value delicious food.

    La Grotte: Best meal in Mürren

    by cheezecake_deli Updated Jan 25, 2014

    La Grotte is the modern European restaurant (with a Swiss twist) in the Hotel Blumental. It served the best meal we had in Mürren, albeit not a cheap one (but then eating out is generally expensive in Mürren). We washed down our veal and fish dishes with Rugenbrau, the local (Interlaken) beer. Service was very good too.

    Favorite Dish: I'm a sucker for rösti!

    Hotel Alpina Restaurant: Good for views but average food

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jan 25, 2014
    View from the restaurant

    This is a hotel restaurant serving modern European food. We ate here as we were staying at the hotel and were too tired on our first night to wander too far. In general, we found food in Switzerland somewhat disappointing and expensive (yes, even when compared to London where reality exceeds expectation). In the grand scheme of things, we have eaten at worse places in Switzerland, though the food here was average and a tad too salty. The best thing about the restaurant is its location at the cliff edge, 1000 m above Lauterbrunnental, with awe-inspiring views of the Bernese Alps, including the triumvirate of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks.

    Favorite Dish: Nothing stood out.

    Piz Gloria: Have a martini shaken not stirred.

    by littlesam1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant Piz Gloria is the worlds first revolving mountain top restaurant. There are others in Switzerland now and we visited a couple of them. But Piz Gloria was the first. Construction was started in 1967 just before the James Bond film was made. The motion picture company drew up a contract with the builders to use the building for filming before they opened the restaurant. The producers agreed to finance a helicopter port for the restaurant as part of the contract.

    There is a James Bond bar below the restaurant and a gift shop with every kind of James Bond souvineer you could want.

    We were staying in Murren and did not discover this restaurant until our final night. The food was wonderful and the prices were moderate. This hotel is located just up the hill behind the Lauterbrauen train station. I would recommend trying the place it was GREAT!!!!

    Restaurant Alpenruh: Decent Food, Tremendous Views

    by travelfrosch Written Jul 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mountains... and Beer...
    3 more images

    My wife was... er, I mean, we were very hungry, so the restaurant closest to the lift station won. In this case, it was Restaurant Alpenruh. There was plenty of outdoor seating along the cliff. The service was slow, the food was mediocre, the prices were as high as our lofty perch... but the views were enough to wow the most jaded Alp-aholic. Oh, and they had beer on tap, so I was happy. ;)

    Favorite Dish: Roesti with ham, cheese and fried egg was the choice this time. Eggshells were included at no extra charge. The beer was a local Interlaken brew. It'll never be confused with Augustiner Edelstoff, but it was cold and fresh.

    Piz Gloria restaurant: Where James had his Martini stirred, not shaken

    the revolving restaurant of Schilthorn
    4 more images

    There is a revolving restaurant on top of Piz Gloria / Schilthorn and the best about it is the great alpine-panorama passing by your table automatically. The restaurant is not extremely expensive and when you are lucky to catch one of the rare seats at the window, why not spending some time there, having a meal and taking a Martini stirred, not shaken...

    Favorite Dish: Well, why not tasting a Martini stirred, not shaken ??
    Roest? - is similar to hash brown potatoes, but in Switzerland they have a special kind of preparation that you will not find anywhere else. Roesti is served with a fried egg, sometimes mushrooms, tomatoes or overbaked with cheese.

    Jim relaxing after his lunch

    One last picture inside the restaurant. Here is Jim relaxing and enjoying the view after we finished lunch. I was surprised at the prices. I thought it would be very expensive but instead it was very reasonable. There is a sample menu at the web site I listed on the introduction page.

    Piz Gloria: Dining at Piz Gloria

    by littlesam1 Written Oct 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    He we are, the guys in hats, sitting inside of Piz Gloria enjoying our meal. The restaurant makes a complete 360 degree rotation every hour. It was hard to eat because we kept watching the changing scenery. One good tip: Do not sit you camera or packages on the window sill. The restaurant moves but the sill is stationary and you will leave you possesions behind as the restaurant moves.
